Guest Speaker: Thirty Years of Landscape Ecology (1987-2017): Retrospects and Prospects - Jianguo (Jingle) Wu, School of Life Sciences and School of Sustainability, Arizona State University
During the past 30 years, the journal, Landscape Ecology, has grown rapidly from a tiny new journal with fewer than 20 articles per year at the beginning to a major research journal producing more than 160 articles per year. During the same time period, the field of landscape ecology has also developed tremendously from a newly revitalized conflation of ecology and geography to a fully-fledged interdisciplinary scientific enterprise that cuts across a wide range of natural and social sciences. Here I examine how the journal has grown during the 30 years, with numbers and personal reflections. No, numbers cannot account for everything, but they do help us make better sense of changing patterns. In addition, I will discuss several research priorities for further advancing landscape ecology and landscape sustainability science in the coming decades.
